CNC machined bolt made from Nylatron.
Self lubricating material.
Maintenance free (no '0' rings to oil).
Smoother action (no scuffing in the chamber).
Lighter in weight than stock bolt.
Open face giving maximum airflow.
Better fit in chamber creating more air efficiency.
Reduced ball breakage.
The cheapest effective upgrade for you marker.
The APM Products Dragun TES Bolt is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I just got my T1 yesterday and as soon as i had it, i put this bolt in my gun. This bolt is awesome! i went through 1000 rounds and no chops! i havent tested the blowback but i dont think there will be much since T1 is an electro.
For the price, you cannot beat it! This bolt is awesome!!!!
Stock T1 bolt - Much louder, needs constant attention (lube) in the field and prone to ball breakage
Dragun One, APM bolt, API Bulldog IV 45" 3K HPA, Trigger Switch Mod, 14" J&J Ceramic
Lighter than stock bolt
Lowers operating pressure
I can see light around it...
The stock bolt on the T1 I found quite loud and needing a load of lube to really function as well as it could, so I was very excited to get my hands on the Tigershark. I received the bolt in THREE days (not counting Sunday) instead of the five to ten days it says it will take on their website. After cleaning all the lube from my breach (stupid stocker) I slid my old bolt pin in and sprayed some paint. Aside from a batch of brittle paint that gave the stock bolt hell, this thing really rips!!! My T1 is way quieter and it seems to want to cycle faster. From what I could tell, with the stock bolt, I never found the gun starving with my 12V Revy, now you would think I have a freaking VL200 on her! She wants SOOOO much more than the Revy can give and still won't break balls with the eye.
I love it. Except now I have to invest in a force feed...I don't think the fact I can see a little light around the bolt makes much of a difference but once I get her in the field we'll see. I'll post with any updates
For twenty bucks, this bolt will help your T1 or TES reach the potential you know it's capable of. That is all that matters. This should be EVERYONE'S first upgrade. I give her a 10 for the value, performance and return on investment.

Dragun TES black/blue fade
PMI Flame drop
Revvy with vortex impellers
4500/72 stubby CenterFlag compressed air tank
Very light, fits the gun very well.
I used the stock bolt for a few months and the inside of my TES was scarred up. I wanted a nylatron bolt and APM had the right one at the right price. It requires less pressure because it is lighter. It has less air lost up the feed neck. It has less kick.
 after a year or so with this bolt, it has completely swollen up and will not fit in the gun anymore. I thought Nylatron was not supposed to swell. I guess if you want to buy a bolt every year, this is the bolt for you.
For $20 shipped how can you go wrong? Awesome bolt
